Question regarding downloading messages from POP3 server

Hi,

I set up an a POP3 account so a copy of an email sent to my Yahoo account would be rerouted to Outlook 2003.  Upon the initial setup within Outlook I stipulated that a copy of every email be kept on the Yahoo server.

Now I have upgraded to Outlook 2007.  After I restore the 2003 .pst file and once again set up the Yahoo POP3 account, I only want to download those emails sent to my Yahoo account since the .pst file was created, i.e. I want to avoid downloading the 1000s of emails again.  Can this be done?  Is there a way that I can tell Outlook to download copies of emails as of a certain date?

Thanks-

I am not sure about Yahoo, but maybe it is the same or close to gmail. On gmail I can go to my settings and enable or disable pop access to the account. Then i can say when I want to dwonload emails from, ie today on, or another day on. then when I access via outlook, i only get the messages i want.

i don't have a yahoo account so I can't test, but i hope that helps,

Hello jgerbitz,

Yahoo uses POP3.  POP3 protocol does not allow you to specify download emails from a certain date.  So you will have to redownload all the emails. Sorry!

Gmail allows you to download the last 30 days of email with a special mode. But Yahoo does not have such mode.

Hope this helps!
